Amsterdam Ingenuity

Category: AmsterdamChrisM @ 3:25 am

This is a slightly delicate topic, so I will try to ensure I approach it with some decorum…
Men have an advantage over women when it comes to that time when nature calls… out in the open countryside, give us a bush tree, or simply no one else within sight, and we can all find relief with the minimum of planning or hassle.
However, some men seem to have a problem with… accuracy when it comes to civilised bathrooms (WCs, loos, toilets, feel free to insert your nation’s favoured term here). For whatever reason, their attention can momentarily slip, and a wet floor can follow.
However, some clever designer has come up with a solution…

Fly In Urinal

Yep, paint a fake fly in a urinal, and many men will see it as a challenge – something to truly aim for. According to this report (the site basically debunks myths, or confirms strange stories, depending on the outcome of their research), Schiphol Airport have had to spend less money on cleaning the bathroom floor now that men have something to keep their minds occupied on the job in hand… if you’ll forgive the pun.
